How about this lovely East Coast weather?

I guess my favorite has to be from 4/29/71, but I love the early juiced up versions too.

Right now I'm enjoying this under appreciated treasure from '71. The CR&S is nothing special but the show is dynamite in spite of some bad cuts...

What are favorite Cold Rain and Snows? Any thoughts on this number, certainly a durable and plenteous component of the bands catalogue...

Stay warm/dry!

Cliff, driving in thru the windy cold rain & snow toward the Spectrum from Central New Jersey nearly drove off the road parked a mile away and sure enough the band opened with - Cold Rain & Snow -

Hey, Cliff. What a joy for you to have all those 80s Cold Rain and Snow's to listen to! Once you're done with them, my favorites are:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1970-01-10.sbd.miller.89281.sbeok.flac16

That one's my long-standing favorite.


http://www.archive.org/details/gd69-06-07.sbd.kaplan.9074.sbeok.shnf

Interesting mid-tempo version, on the way to the more bluesy versions of the next year, wedged between an excellent Sittin' on Top of the World and an excellent Doin' That Rag.


http://www.archive.org/details/gd70-10-04.fm.glassberg_winters.28363.sbeok.shnf

That one has circulated as part of a So Many Roads outtakes pair of CDs. It has some great, over-the-top work by Phil.

Yeah, I was wondering just how far "down there" your nuggets of familial production are located as using a cardinal direction to describe their positioning is going a bit too far, IMHO. Of course, I have no first hand knowledge of said location in your case, and then I realized you were talking about some "one" rather than your currently well chilled sperm reservoirs. Nonetheless, your discussions of the early need for long underwear brings a big smile to the likes of SDH, Cush and the rest of us half baked Sedona Sauna Twits (assume you and the misses avoided such bizarre cleansing ceremonies; your monthly bath is no doubt filled with plenty of ritual and existential mystery).

Richmond 11/1/85. A cold, rainy night outside; problems between the police and some gate crashers (cops took some heat for this but it turned out to be a sign of things to come). Not as strong musically as the glory years, maybe but very right-on-time that night in the number two slot after a strong "Dancin'" opener.

Forget the Dick's Picks of this show; the Oade audience captures the way the crowd reacts to this excellent choice.

Well its been that kind of couple of days, and it looks like two more to come...

I checked out just about every one that was suggested except the ones from the 80's (sorry couldnt do it boys)

I found the Tivoli performance to be extremely well played!

Robwords pick from 10/26/69 was an interesting rendition, and Lou's selection from 6/7/69 was pretty cool.

I didnt recall the version from Legion Stadium, so I checked it out and found it disapointing, sorry Deadred :)

The best one is still 4/29/71!

But I'm surprised nobody suggested one from 1966...

You're right. I just remembered the show from hearing it a long time ago. That was oddly enough when I could still hear good. Last night's AC/DC concert in DC didn't help with the ears.

I don't have the memory for this tune to do the summary, but I defn incline toward the early versions with the fast pace a la the First Album tempo...

I’ll never forget the Cold Rain & Snow opener on the second night of Augusta ’84. I distinctly remember thinking about my mom during that song and wondering what in the world she would make of this sound that I was experiencing. I was as lit as can be at the time.

One of my favorites I saw was Hampton 3/19/86. I remember being impressed with the syncopated rhythm they created, especially on Bobby's part. Phil lays down the law, as usual. The way they echoed the chorus in the Coliseum was cool too. Very eerie. And I also liked that it wasn't the opener. All the bugs were worked out on the earlier tunes. By the time CR&S started, the sound was righteous.

The CR&S opener on 12/26/79 (DP 5) really cooks. I love that song. Of all the dead's cover tunes, Cold Rain might be my favorite. 8-25-72 also kicks ass.
